Are You Aggressive?

A recent study says that bottled-up emotions can be one of the causes for aggression. Most common causes have been found to be alcohol abuse, depression, mood swings, frustration, pre-menstrual syndrome, and stress.

Aggression can manifest in physical bad behavior or verbal abuse.  Name calling, shouting, nasty remarks, beating are signs of aggressive behavior.

Here are a few tips to control your aggresive behaviour:

  • To overcome aggressive behavior learn to control your temper.
  • Explore and analyse underlying feelings of hurt, anger or fear.
  • Practice yoga, pranayam or meditation.
  • Minimise expectations because failure to meet them can also make you frustrated and lead to aggression.
  • Be content with what you achieve, unless you are ambitious and want to conquer the world!
  • Find constructive ways to vent your anger rather than bottling it up.
  • Be empathetic towards your family and colleagues.
  • Choose to be assertive instead of aggressive.
  • Involve yourself in social service in your spare time.
  • Accept changes around you.

If none of the above work, meet a psychologist or an emotional counselor to resolve your aggression problem.
